Ubuntu Trusty review

Ubuntu is still my fav. Linux distro because its stable, you can game with it and it just works – while other bloody distros often crash or simply are more complicated to use – time is money baby! The problem is that you might have some troubles in customizing it or you ask yourself how can I make the switch from Windows?! So this guide is exactly for you! The overview gives you a short opinion what is well done in Ubuntu and what could be improved based on my experience.

I decided to test Ubuntu 14.04, which I found to be amazing in all scenarios, on the LG laptop. Let’s see what gives.

Intel SPI Driver in Ubuntu 17.10 Release Might Corrupt Your Laptop Bios

Canonical has pulled their latest Ubuntu 17.10 release because there are many reports of Lenovo and other brand laptops experiencing corrupted BIOS when the OS is installed. At this time it looks like the Intel SPI driver is the culprit. Once a new kernel is compiled without these drivers the OS will be made available for download once again. If you downloaded this before this morning then you shouldn’t install on your laptop. In some cases only a motherboard replacement will fix the bad BIOS.
